"Some exit polls, that fail over and over again, are used to misguide people. May be they want to plant a doubt in people's minds. Exit polls need to be based on facts. Those conducting exit polls on behalf of some vested interests for money should be banned immediately," Kavlekar told reporters at a press conference here.
Kavlekar said that the administrative machinery of the Election Commission (EC), as well as the state and the Central governments could not be trusted when it came to the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and the counting process.
"We suspect attempts to rig the counting process and therefore we have instructed our party workers to stay on guard and not rely on the EC and the government officials on duty," the Congress leader said.
